Fryer Oil Disposal and Recycling Services

Cooking oil can be used numerous times in the fryers before it passes its useful life. When this happens, it should be stored in the proper containers until it is ready for recycling collection. Ensuring the proper storage and regular collection of used cooking oil is essential to mitigate potential hazards like spills and injuries, while simultaneously playing a role in environmental preservation.

Collaborating with Mahoney Environmental, an EPA-licensed oil recycling company, allows foodservice establishments to guarantee the consistent collection and recycling of their used fryer oil. Our professionals will transfer the UCO from your designated containers onto our specialized vehicles for transportation to our advanced processing facility. Beyond just cutting frying costs, our pickup services also contribute to improved kitchen safety.

Our expertise extends to helping foodservice establishments with the design and installation of automated systems dedicated to the secure handling and storage of used cooking oil. Our professionals provide collection and transportation of your fryer oil to our facility for recycling, and we keep detailed records of the UCO we collect. The recycled UCO is used to produce valuable resources, including sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), renewable diesel, and other eco-friendly products.

We can provide the following with our fryer oil recycling services:

  • Used fryer oil pickup and recycling
  • UCO level monitoring
  • Cooking oil handling and storage equipment

Restaurant Grease Trap Cleaning and Installation

Ensuring the effective maintenance of grease traps is crucial for commercial kitchens to prevent the disposal of fats, oil, and grease (FOG) into the drains. Improper disposal not only results in significant damage to plumbing and sewage systems but also introduces environmental hazards. Businesses risk fines for violating city ordinances if they neglect proper procedures and wash oil down the drain.

Baffles within grease traps play a crucial role in isolating fats, oil, and grease from wastewater and retaining them within the system. It is essential to consistently clean grease traps to avoid the accumulation of excessive grease and oil, preventing potential blockages and related issues. Inadequate trap maintenance and cleaning can result in the following consequences:

  • Kitchen flooding
  • Bad odors
  • Contamination and health issues
  • Expensive remediation services
  • Fines
  • Business closures
